Florida Bill to Eliminate Ethanol Requirement Moves to Governor

Legislation (H.B. 4001) to repeal the requirement that all gasoline offered for sale in Florida contain a percentage of  ethanol was approved by the state Senate on a 33-1 vote, following its previous approval by the Florida House.  

Currently, the Florida Renewable Fuels Standard requires that all gasoline sold or offered for sale by a terminal supplier, importer, blender or wholesaler in Florida contain 9-10 percent ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume.  The bill will now be sent to the governor, for his signature and enactment into law.

We Urge You to Contact Governor Rick Scott (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request his Support for H.B. 4001
•H.B. 4001 recognizes that ethanol increases water formation which can then corrode metals, plastics and rubber, especially over a period of time when the vehicle is not used.  Current high performance specialty parts, along with pre-model year 2001 cars and parts, may be most susceptible to corrosion.
•H.B. 4001 recognizes that the life span of vehicles and equipment can be dramatically reduced with the wrong fuel, and that owners could be confronted with break downs. Anti-corrosion additives are available for each purchase of gasoline, but can become expensive, burdensome and require consumer education.
•H.B. 4001 recognizes that while the current ethanol mandate does not apply to fuel used in collector vehicles, off-road vehicles, motorcycles or small engines, there has been an inability to obtain unblended gasoline for engines that may be damaged by ethanol.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact Governor Rick Scott immediately to request his support for H.B. 4001.  Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at  Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SEMA Action Network (SAN),  and help defend the hobby!

Thank you for your assistance.
